Re: [[[Playtest Focus]]] Fleet Scale Battles

What is a fleet? Well, anything that the ref does not want to do 'normal' ship combat for :) If you want a large scale fleet system, well, that is what a miniatures game is for (Traveller Ship Combat Box Set with plastic miniatures for $75, available... well, when we get a solid foundation for it :...

Re: Idea in progress : Scout Interceptor/Pirate chaser

On a quick read through it looks like you've re-invented the Gazzelle close escort and/or its Fiery (IIRC) variant.

Given that the 3I is substantially Vilani descended now (culturally) and the Solomani should be encouraging the go ahea...

Re: Space Romance Movies

Although there are extensive ice caps, there is limited water supplies near the starport. Kristoff and the other ice miners use grav sleds to bring huge blocks to the port to be melted and refined for starship fuel.

Re: Sargasso Hex's

I love the idea of a Sargasso Hex. Very evocative. You might reverse the effect and make the Sargasso Hex the one to which all misjumps go and then make it very difficult to jump out of. In fact I'm tempted to make all Red Zones Sargasso Hexes just for a different flavour IMTU

Suerrat

I thought I remembered seeing a Suerrat minor alien module on the release schedule. Has this one fallen by the wayside?

Re: Need some brainstorming help

Isn't there a prison planet in the Marches?

That way if (when) they get off world they haven't lost all of their background/character investment in the Marches (and you can continue to use familiar material)

Re: Noble Armada End of Line Sale

Noticed today that the NA miniatures seem to have disappeared from the Mongoose store. Does that mean they've all been sold or that licensing issues mean they can no longer be sold?
